September 1, 2010 – Legal search firm Major, Lindsey & Africa has recruited David Crenshaw as general counsel at Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen and Loewy, LLP (Fragomen). The search was led by Melanie Bennet, global practice leader of MLA’s law firm management practice and Michael Sachs, a managing director in MLA’s in-house practice group. “This position combines many elements of law firm management with the traditional in-house responsibilities of a general counsel,” said Ms. Bennet. “It therefore requires an exceptionally accomplished attorney with a distinguished professional record and a strong business orientation.” Mr. Crenshaw previously had a distinguished career at Schering-Plough Corporation (now known as Merck & Co., Inc.), where he was lead counsel and a member of senior leadership for legacy Schering’s top business unit and largest commercial attorney group supporting Europe, Canada, the Middle East and Africa. With offices throughout the U.S., London, Hong Kong and Tokyo, Major, Lindsey & Africa is an executive search firm focused on the legal sector.
